Section Information for Fall 2021

From the Arab Spring to Occupy Wall Street to Black Lives Matter, the last decade has seen a variety of competing claims about the role social media plays in activist struggles for social change. Taking a critical, theoretical, and practical approach to the examination of social media as a tool for challenging inequality and working toward goals of social justice, we will explore the ways social media intersects with, complicates, and possibly reconfigures activist practice in the twenty-first century.
